Quick review from two visits: Service is good - physical plant is good - food is, at best, unexceptional - price is high and servings are small. Took friends for lunch and dinner in the past month. Both times, my vegetables were served cold and the food was not worth going back for. Yesterday's lunch cost $72 with tip for... More

The food was fantastic and options diverse. I went as part of a tour package so I can't comment on price. Portions could have been a little bigger.

We participated in the hands on cooking class "Chefs Table" when we finished we enjoyed the fruits of our labor!! Awesome time cooking with friends! The chef was fun and informative. A great atmosphere.

Went for lunch with friends. Got a wonderful corner table in the bar which was fine. You can't really see the water, BTW. Ordered the usual lunch fare, including my wife's attempt to order Vegan. She cobbled a vegetarian wrap into vegan but nothing special. Same for all the other entries. Service was OK, but absent for long periods, and... More

This place is great. We had reservations for the Beer and Food Paring. They are top notch with anything they present. Took a bread baking class, and loved every minute

Food is okay but the service fell short several times on our dinner visit. Ignored for large periods of time, dirty wine glasses with spots and lip marks replaced with another round of dirty glasses, had to ask for bread, "who ordered the salad?", "keep your dirty silverware", "can't make any changes because the chef gets testy" - need I...

My friend and I stopped in around 7:30. We did a wine tasting first, and the girl behind the bar was courteous, friendly, and professional. We then went upstairs to eat. Our waiter was great- he gave us great suggestions. We both had pizza. I had the margherita and my friend had mushroom and they were quite good. We paired... More

We ordered three items in the Bistro: warm pear appetizer/salad, pizza, lox sandwich. The warm pear appetizer was tasteless. The pizza was burnt (so the staff graciously replaced it). The lox sandwich had very little smoked salmon. The staff were all helpful and professional. Separately we had a wine tasting of five New York wines at a cost of $9... More

Every once and awhile we give this spot another chance. And each time we leave saying never again! The service is consistently horrible. The servers are friendly but lack training. They take your order, serve you (after a lengthy time) and then aren't seen again. The food selections are limited. We love the idea of using local foods but some... More
